Great rooms, good beds, plenty of hot water, A/C, overhead fan, screened
poarch. Great food from main course to snacks. Beer was $4.5 and mixed
drinks $7 and up. Dive boats were small and you got to sit on the boat's
side-there was a 12 inch flange on the side. Dive sites were all within 5
minutes of the dock. The dives were good as far as coral and fish were
concerned, but were all pretty much the same.The managers ran this place
like a military school.
During the week, I never head anyone say to the quests "what would you
like". This is a great area for diving, but I am going to Blackbird
Caye Resort next time.
